About Rob & Jamie Baker

My family and I have been guests of The Betsie River Lodge as vacationers for the past 7+ years. When the opportunity to become owners came to be, we jumped on it! We have 4 children and reside in suburban SE Michigan. We will be making some improvements and updates over the months/years ahead. Overall our plans are to continue sharing this property with respectful weekend vacationers.

Rob & Jamie Baker purchased this lodge in 2014

Why Rob & Jamie Baker chose Crystal Mountain, Thompsonville

Having family and vacationing in the area prompted our decision to invest into the area. We truly find the mix of rural quiet with close amenities to be right for our family and friends. We love it here!

What makes this lodge unique

We are an active family!! Biking, fishing, hiking, golf, beaches, skiing, snowshoeing and winter activities galore!!

We rented the betsie river lodge back in September, we loved everything about it... the lodge was beautiful inside and out, the land was perfect. We stayed with our 5 month baby and 5 year old, they both loved it. Great for any age. So peaceful, i can't wait to go back... the week stay wasn't long enough. Highly recommended.

Every year we go on a fishing trip and rent a cabin on a river somewhere. Out of all the places I have been this place is by far the best! Place is kept very nice and clean, everything is ready to go and fully stocked. I work IT so the new addition of wifi was great for me to check in on a few things while I was out there. Also to update my fantasy football :). The best hole on the river is right behind this cabin. You can wake up and sit on the bench over looking the river and watch the Salmon doing what they do best while drinking a cup of joe. Love this place, will be here every fall that I can.

The owner was very easy to communicate and deal with from the get go. The place is very nice, updated, and comfortable. The kitchen is very well stocked for cooking for a group of people. The back deck, firepit, and swing overlooking the river are very nice. Would definitely stay here again if we ever come up to fish the Betsie again.
